Alumni Relations Thanks All Involved With First-Ever Witt Nation
Witt Nation 2008 – WOW! The trip was an awesome adventure for all in the Wittenberg family. It was unlike any other trip that you can imagine. It did not feel like a Spring break trip, a family vacation, or even a weekend road trip to another college campus. It had a flavor of its own.
Watching our young alumni, Ashley, Brian and Ross, as they took to the road, for the 8,000-mile trip – traveling across the country, engaging with alumni from all classes, hearing the wonderful stories, creating their own memories – while a tad bit jealous, I thought, this is it! What they were experiencing was exactly what we had hoped – immersing themselves in a nation filled with wonderful Wittenberg people who were sharing their thoughts, stories and homes with other alumni. It was a true Witt Nation.
Wittenberg alumni exhibited genuine kindness, generosity and compassion that through this trip has reinforced what we all know: Wittenberg is a special place where special people go on to do fabulous and marvelous things with their lives and have a true passion for their alma mater. The road crew witnessed this in every city. Wittenberg is also a place where we all learned lifelong lessons inside and outside of the classroom. It is where we made friendships that have and will last a lifetime. These lessons are those that have and will continue to create the unique bond we all have today as Wittenberg alumni – the bond of classmates, colleagues and friends, passing on the light to brighten tomorrow.
We can’t wait for next year.
